Simplified Characters with Accessible Pinyin Support

Authored by Terry T. Waltz

Everyone should have a bucket list, but when your particular bucket happens to be the trash can, getting through your to-dos and into the affections of the girl you like can be tough. Will Tom's strategy and the items on his list be enough to overcome the fact that in tennis, love is zero?

A full glossary and overleaf Pinyin support let new readers read independently. "Tom" fits between "Susan you mafan!" and "Josh Duyiwuer" in this series of easy readers by Terry Waltz.
